The only times I go to Epcot are during F&W or F&G. So I'm paying $100+ to go in a park and spend $4-10 each on tiny portions of food and drink. Somebody at Disney is laughing their ass off at me.

And yet, I don't mind and can't wait to go back.

Here is a good article about the coming Epcot changes. https://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/...will-look-like
But three more pavilions at least have films or other shows (China, Canada, US), and France does have a film so Rat isnít increasing the number of countries with attractions of some kind. I would argue that something to do other than eat and shop is the norm. Hell, you couldnít really shop in Canada if you wanted to unless you want a plaid jacket or maple candy.

And this is why the two DVC resorts we own are both walking distance to Epcot. It always was for adults. Becoming more so is better.

Cheers.

Yes the four movies (incl American Adventure) are the real "attractions" in World Showcase.
And let's not forget the live entertainment...
Yes it's sad that World Showcase Players and Off Kilter are gone, but Voices of Liberty and Jammitors make me glad I chose to spend the day in Epcot. The acrobats in China are of varying quality, but always worth watching. And there is usually some musical act in the evening. More info at wdwent.com .
